Drunken llama drama is an online hit

A circus llama has become an internet hero after a group of drunken French youths "liberated" the animal and took it on a nocturnal tram tour of Bordeaux.

Photos of the exploits of Serge the llama have now gone viral on the internet.

Before dawn last Thursday, the young men left a nightclub and stumbled past a circus. "We ended up taking a llama with us," one, called Matthieu, said.

The animal followed its new masters and seemed interested in taking a tram.

"He hopped on, we followed suit and took a ride with him," said Matthieu.

The llama became frisky after noticing an inspector.

"The inspector made him get off and tied him to a lamppost," said the youth.

The youths were soon picked up by police.
